Choreographing the day, leaving the night alone

An apology for dance

225 kr

Choreography is thought practice converted into survival strategies through actions; actions that stimulate us to think beyond the already spoken, beyond the already seen and beyond what we think we know. This is how everyday life transposes into alternative imagery and happenings that motivate us to live on. Love’s conversation is dance.

 

Efva Lilja uses memories from artistic, ­social and political events to create situations for us to share. She writes of her own life experience, of the power and courage you can fetch from immersing yourself in immaterial stimulation, amusement or the madness that breaks down commonplace reality. This book is a reflection on the conditions of living and an apology for dance.
